Your Galaxy A3 accepts memory cards with maximum capacities of 64 GB, depending on the memory card manufacturer and type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your device.


Please take note of the following in installing a memory card on the device:


● Some memory cards may not be fully compatible with the device. Using an incompatible card may damage the device or the memory card, or corrupt the data stored in it.


● Use caution to insert the memory card right-side up.  




● The device supports the FAT and the exFAT file systems for memory cards. When inserting a card formatted in a different file system, the device asks to reformat the memory card.

● Frequent writing and erasing of data shortens the lifespan of memory cards.

● When inserting a memory card into the device, the memory card’s file directory appears in the My Files → SD card folder.  


To install the memory card on your Galaxy A3, follow these steps:


Step 1: Insert the ejection pin into the hole on the memory card tray to loosen the tray.(also known as SIM card Tray 2)




Step 2: Pull out the memory card tray gently from the memory card tray slot.




Step 3: Place a memory card on the memory card tray with the gold-coloured contacts facing downwards.




Step 4: Insert the memory card tray back into the memory card tray slot.
